Mahalo Pumehana to St. John's "Gardening Angels"!

Some "angels" have been faithfully continuing to tend our new garden (beside the recently paved parking lot)! Mahalo nui to Enid's son Keanu Young for weeding as well as to Raynell Ohara (Charles Ho'okano's grand-niece) for planting grass. Fr. Nahoa took these gorgeous photos recently when he and Jodi Shimabukuro visited the church.

La Cañada High School Choir Visits
On February 16, 2020, St. John's by-the-Sea hosted another visit by the wonderful choir of La Cañada High School from Southern California. The singers offered two hymns during our Sunday morning service and sang for us in Hookano Hall after enjoying a potluck lunch. This was the third time LCHS has visited St. John's, and we're all looking forward to seeing--and hearing!--them again!
